Gabriel Stone is back from Valta, but the adventure is just beginning! His friend Tahlita is trapped in Willow Creek with no memory of Valta. Gabe, Piper, and Brent are determined to reunite Tahlita with her father. Yet even as they do, Prince Oliver arrives asking for their help. Menacing forces known as the Solarians have kidnapped the Empress and Princess and are threatening the lives of humans everywhere. Along with talking tracker monkey, Finley, the friends battle vampire mermaids and a living, blood-filled lake in their quest to save the Empress and Princess. Even with cool new powers, Gabe discovers their strongest weapon is their friendship as they battle the Solarians and rescue a cursed white witch—who may be the only one who can save Valta.
Reading this book brought me back to a time when magic and zero worries filled my life. As a young kid in elementary school this book would have fit me perfectly. At that time reading was all about adventure, fantasies, and of course magic. So for me this book seems tailor made for the boys and girls who just want a fun world to escape to. This novel is a quick read about friends fighting together for one another against evil. I will say that I feel that it would be best to read the first book, as it was a little hard to follow, however I did catch up. This is surely a book that I will be passing on to my little brother to read. The description of the characters are just right and the author creates a great setting for her novel to take place. Those are all great components to a good read!
